COUNCIL BRIEFS

Following are the board highlights from District of 100 Mile House the Nov. 12 council meeting:

Tender awards

Council awarded the tender for replacement of Unit 318, a 1990 Chevrolet dump truck, to Work Truck West for the submitted price of $79,700 plus tax.

It also awarded a three-year line painting contract services tender to Andesite Holdings Ltd. for the submitted annual price of $20,238, plus tax.

Three quotes were obtained for each, and then after staff confirmed the contractors’ apparent abilities to efficiently deliver these contracts, the awards were presented to the lowest contract bids.

Dairy Queen DVP

A development variance permit (DVP) was granted for the Dairy Queen located at 170 Highway 97, to allow three fascia signs to be affixed to the building in preparation for the former restaurant to be reopened by new owner Amarjit Janda.

The new, renovated restaurant will also feature an Orange Julius outlet.

Apartment approved

A zoning amendment for a ground-floor apartment located at 355 Birch Ave. received third reading and adoption by council, after its previous completion of first and second readings and the public hearing stage.

It legalizes an existing, but improved 900-square-foot maximum apartment with a rear entrance, as an accessory building use, but allows no entrance off Birch Avenue.
